On 3 Jan 2004, SU-ZCF a operated by Flash Airlines of Egypt departed from runway 22R at Sharm el Sheikh at night. The weather was visibility 10K+, 17C, light winds. The aircraft took off and climbed normally and began a left hand turn as scheduled. But at 2000ft the turn slowly reversed to the right and the aircraft progressively rolled until it was banked 90 degrees at about 5600ft. It then rapidly lost height and dived into the sea. It disappeared from Radar at 04:44 (local) into the Red Sea approx 9 miles from the runway. No mayday call was made.
The Egyptian operated charter flight was bound for Cairo for a crew change and then on to Paris, CDG. It was carrying mostly French tourists. All 135 pax and 13 crew perished.
